video production? Apple is much better at this than pc. If you don't really plan on playing many games, get a mac.

not really, for the same price youd pay for a mac, you can get a beast of a pc that can do just as much if not more then a mac.

2gb of ram = $300
250 gb hd = $80
GFX Card (a 6600gt would more then do it) =$150
Motherboard = $120
Processor (a nice intel 3.6 ghz) = $408
Case w/ power supply and accesories, Keyboard + Mouse, Monitor = $400

Thats all under $1500, you aint gunna get a better computer be it mac or pc for that price for what your doing. More then enough processing power, a more then sufficent gfx card, plenty of ram and harddrive space, and all the other goodies.

Technically, they're all PCs. Apple PCs are super nice, but compatibility issues and price present a problem for most people. Build a high performance Windows system and you'll own.

To be honest, in my opinion, i don't really like the Apple PCs, but as people said, PC are primarily for gaming, Macs are good in the graphics industry, such as image editting, video editting and a wide range of others such as engineering, Mac is a somewhat default computer for many areas of the developing industry, don't know why though lol, stability issues perhaps ?
But if you plan to use your computer mainly for your school stuff, then you should get that
